A few weeks ago I went to Azulfit and the theme of the week was ‘raising your vibration’.
On day one of the retreat I was quite naïve to the term and didn’t really think about the impact my vibration has or how others vibrations impact me. However, since discovering the incredible affect raising my vibration has on my life, I’ve been making sure I keep the damn thing well exercised.
So what on earth am I talking about?
Vibrations aren’t just what happens when your phone rings in your pocket. It’s all about the universe. Everything in the Universe is energy and all energy exists at different levels of vibration and frequency, so planets and their inhabitants vibrate at different levels. Still with me? Earth is a third dimensional planet with fourth and fifth dimension activity in progression. This means Earth’s vibration is rising. Sounds pretty ‘out there’ right?
But what does that mean for us?
In order to feel more at peace, in touch, connected, happier, you can practice raising your vibration. It may sound like a bunch of mad hippy lunacy to the scientists among you, but this is tangible stuff. When people talk about feeling at peace, about thier life suddenly having more meaning, or about experiencing the law of attraction, this is what is at the core of those changes.
Raising your vibration enables you to receive a more direct guidance and clearer guidance from your Higher self since it vibrates at a higher level. Creating and using this relationship to your Higher self allows for information to be more easily accepted by the conscious and actualized. In other words, once you begin to raise your vibration, you can better understand … everything.
You will see the interconnectedness of all life. You will begin to see how you can change your life for the better and bring amazing experiences into your life.
Since raising my vibration a few weeks ago and taking a daily spiritual practise to keep that mo-fo heightened, my life has drastically changed. I feel more positive and the world seems an altogether brighter place, full of promise. People are commenting on the visible difference in me and it feels f*cking fantastic.
How do you raise your vibration?
When you meditate, you stop thinking, including limiting and negative thoughts. This allows your vibration to rise. While your vibration will not be permanently reset to the new higher vibration achieved in the meditative state, it will also not return completely to where it was when you started.
Watch your breath move throughout you with your mind’s eye, bringing your attention to your internal self, and feel your body relax. Bringing your conscious attention to your breath automatically calms your mind and brings you to a state of meditation.
A technique for beginner mediators is to count your breath, on the exhale, up to ten and then begin back at one. If you lose track, simply go back to one. Just twenty minutes a day will gradually change your vibrational set point to a higher and higher frequency.
Do something that makes you really happy.
Happiness and joy vibrate at a much higher frequency than any other emotion. Find something that makes you happy and do it everyday. Draw, practise yoga, call a friend, take a bath.
The universe loves it when we are havin fun! So dance, sing, listen to music, laugh and scream out ‘yeahhhhhhh I love me and the world I’m part of’.
Breathing deeply and slowly will raise your vibration. Breathe in through your nose, and out through your nose, feeling the breath fill you and then exit.
We are all energy, connecting and responding to one another on much more than this single dimension…. The love you give out is multiplied and returns to you tenfold.
I don’t just mean to others but to yourself. Practise forgiveness, acceptance and most of all love. By letting go of toxic thoughts and being generally a nice person you’ll simply glow. Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re unique and god damn fabulous.
Much like toxic thoughts, toxic foods can bring your vibration down so make sure you treat yourself with respect and fuel your mind and body with the good stuff. Eat naturally delicious foods and take time to taste what you have on your plate.
Lastly, surround yourself with others coasting on high vibrations and avoid those that try and drill holes in your pot of positivity. Energy creates energy so be around those that shine golden.
